UK: Spiritual gathering held under banner of MWL Bradford

MWL Bradford hosted the Sayyeda Zainab (AS) Conference on 8th November 2015 at the local Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre. With an attendance of over 90 women and children, the event began shortly after 1 pm.

To begin the blessed gathering, Sister Safiyyah Ahmed (MWL Bradford Media Secretary) was invited for the recitation of the Holy Quran. Surah Kawthar was recited by her in a beautiful manner. The gathering was blessed with further Praise of Almighty Allah, with the melodious voice of Sister Rukhsana reciting 'Mere Allah'. To follow Sister Rubina commenced the praising of our Beloved Prophet (SAW) by engaging with the audience to recite 'Salle Ala.'

The event continued with recitation of ‘Manqabats’ in the remembrance of Imam Hussain (AS) and the Ahlul Bayt in order to honour them. This began with Sister Fazilat reciting the well-known 'Syed Ne Karbla Mein'. This was a very emotive recital. Sister Rubina recited 'Ye Dil Bi Hussaini Hain' and encouraged all present to recite alongside her. Sister Shamim Akhtar was invited to the stage to recite a Sufi Kalam in the remembrance of Imam Hussain Alaihisalaam, after which the manqabats continued.

The series of Manqabats continued with Sister Rukhsana reciting Durood Sharif with verses related to Imam Hussain (AS) and his character to commemorate His selfless sacrifice in the way of Islam. She also recited the kalaam 'Mein to Panjtan Ki Ghulam Hu' which reignited the Sister’s love for our Beloved Prophet (PBUH) and the Lady of Paradise' Dear Family. 'Karbal Ki Hai Yaad Ayi' was recited this also very heart touching.

Students of Minhaj-ul-Quran Education Centre were invited to cast their magic on those present with the recitation of the Naat, 'Aya Ji Aya' in their wonderful voices. After this a short break was taken for Asr prayer before continuing with the Conference.

In continuation of the praise of the Prophet (SAW), Sister Surayya was invited to stage and recited 'Mein Lab Kay Lay Awa'. Sister Jannat (MWL UK Membership Secretary) was invited to stage to enlighten the Sisters, the benefits of the first ten days of Muharram for the Muslim Community. She highlighted the significance of the tenth day, its rewards and events that occurred.

Sister Rubina (MWL UK Welfare Secretary) spoke about Sayyeda Fatima's virtuous character and the blessings in her daily life. She said that she (AS) received support which no other human being can. Leaving the audience struck by the beautiful character of Sayyeda Fatima (AS) Sister Rubina invited the guest speaker Sister Mariam Hashmi. She delivered a speech that covered the tragic events of Karbala. She spoke in depth and highlighted the finer details, which very few people are aware of. After informing the audience of the more detailed event, she talked about the sacrifices of the Ahlul Bayt and their service towards the Ummah, and how Muslims should look more towards serving the Ummah in whatever way they can.

Sister Rubina and Sister Saima talked about the importance of knowledge and promoted the educational classes taking place at the Minhaj-ul-Quran Centre, Bradford.

All the Sisters sent Salaam upon our Beloved Prophet (SAW) as well as on the martyrs of Karbala. Dhikr of Almighty Allah was led by Sister Rehana Ilyas (MWL Bradford General Secretary). After having refreshed ourselves with Dhikr, Sister Mariam made a Dua for Muslims across the world.
